Eminem's mortal enemy Moby has returned with a new album, Wait For Me, and the video for the album's debut single, Shot In the Back of the Head, is an animated short made by none other than David Lynch. (For our more sensitive or namby-pamby readers, don't be scared off by the video's title; the video isn't violent, and it's safe for work.) While Lynch's animated shorts aren't nearly as well known as his live-action movies, he's been making cartoons for a while and he attracted quite a cult following with his 2002 web series Dumbland. Dumbland was a rude, crude mess set in a kind of redneck hades, and Lynch did all the animating himself and even provided the voices. Shot In the Back of the Head is somewhat similar to Dumbland visually, although it's much more moody and melancholy.
